Richard was always my inspiration. I started a business a few months ago and decided to read/listen (finally) his book. I love it.
Amazing stories from his childhood, first business, becoming a businessman, starting a Virgin group. And what is more important more advices from Richard. How to build, how to scale, how to have fun.
What is THE most important. Richard reads this book. He smiles when reads about funny moments, he's sad when he read about sad moments (like story about Iraq).
Short, great read, much value for your entrepreneurs.
I would recommend this book. Alone it's maybe not enough, but with "How To Get Rich" and "Personal MBA" it's a golden mine.
An implementation of the Lean Startup framework into the Eric's company.
When they asked they users about they product and the users didn't like it. They decided to create what users want and boom.

Examples with actionable steps. So many AHA moments. It's the book for all people who are looking for answers about our minds.
The idea that we prefer more options, but we can choose/buy when we have less options.
I believe this is the only book I've read which have so many AHA moments. So many answers for questions. Why we do what we do? Why we are happy?
Yes and no. It's too long. The author shows many examples, but starts to make advices and ideas how to use the "black swan" idea at the far, far end of the book.
The book should be 2/3 times shorter. Less examples, more actionable steps.
David is a good narrator. I prefer when an author read a book, but it's ok.
Yes and no. Yes for idea. No for too much examples.
I recommend to read this book (not listen) and skip chapters.
Great book about how any business should look. A great set of information about google's business model, their acquisitions and much more.
Build Platform Not Website.
I love the thank you economy idea and I can write about it all the time. I want to focus on the narration for that book. Gary Vaynerchuk did something amazing. All the time he adds something new and important to the book.
I should change all the books performance from 5 to 4 starts. All the books should have the same model of narration. Subjective addons from the narrator/author.
I will not tell this book is amazing and you should read that. I will tell you something else. In this book you'll find amazing story with some philisophical aspects, history of running and the real passion. Scott Jurek always was my idol. Now I love him :)
I was smiling, I was crying. I was inspired. The amazing book. Worth reading and specially listening (read by Tony and his employes). A great story about begining, bad choises, good choises and happy ending. And everything has only one goal: delivering happiness.
The concept of the book is great, but... there was missed something. I had really big problem with ending this book. The book is so simple and so boring sometimes. For sure should be shorter.
- Small Notebook is the best way to capture things.
- Everything should be done as simple as possible.
- The best way to be productive is to find one single goal and do everything to achieve it.
- One habit at a time.
- Find passion. There is no other way to be happy with your job.
Minimalistic version of ZTD is amazing and really fits to my idea of life and to my new lifestyle desing. Amazing and short book. Much better to listen/read after GTD by David Allen.
